The New York State Education Department recently issued a memo designed to help parents of students with disabilities better understand the Common Core learning standards. Translations of these resources are available in Spanish, Korean, Russian, Chinese, and Haitian Creole.
Disability Rights New York (DRNY) is the federally and state-authorized Protection and Advocacy System and Client Assistance Program for people with disabilities in New York State. DRNY provides legal and other advocacy services to advance and protect the rights of people with disabilities and to ensure that they are free from abuse and neglect and unlawful discrimination.
DRNY is required, on an annual basis, to create subject matter priorities for its programs and to solicit comments and suggestions about those priorities from people with disabilities and others throughout the state. Once finalized, these priorities will be a statement of where DRNY will focus its advocacy efforts and resources on behalf of people with disabilities during the next fiscal year.
Please review DRNY’s Proposed Priorities for its Protection & Advocacy for Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury program for the period October 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015, and provide your comments and suggestions. All comments received by August 30, 2014 will be given full consideration. A cover memo provides more information on where and how to submit comments.
